Path of Exile promises three ‘epic’ in-game events in December

Path of Exile

Path of Exile is closing out 2020 with three different in-game events throughout the month of December.

The events include a one-week Mayhem Event, a one-week Endless Delve Event, and a three-week Heist Flashback Event. We have more details on each of the events below, which lead up to the end of the Heist League and the launch of an endgame-focused expansion in January.

Mayhem Event

Starting at 3 PM Eastern Time on December 4, a one-week Mayhem Event kicks off. The event takes classic Path of Exile modifiers from past leagues Anarchy, Invasion, Breach, Ambush, Torment, and Harbinger and turns them up to 11.

Each area in Wraeclast has one of the following scenarios with mods changing every hour:

  • 20 Rogue Exiles
  • 20 Strongboxes
  • 20 Invasion Bosses
  • 20 Breaches
  • 20 Tormented Spirits
  • 20 Harbingers

Endless Delve

The one-week Endless Delve event kicks off a week later on December 11 at 3 PM Eastern Time. It takes place entirely in the Azurite Mine. In this unique event, players start their plunge into the perilous darkness with some starter gear. Players will have access to the passive points normally gained from quests and incur Kitava’s resistance penalties at various level thresholds.

Players can ascend their character using the Altar of Ascendancy from within the Mine Encampment while Lilly Roth and Niko will be available to provide skill gems. Players will not have access to their Hideouts or any towns, which means they’ll be going solo against the darkness. Good luck with that.

Heist Flashback Event

Last, but not least, is the three-week Heist Flashback Event. Starting on December 18 at 3 PM Eastern Time, each game area will include several popular mods from past leagues, with a random selection of three of the following mods present, which will change each hour, on the hour:

● 2 Additional Rogue Exiles
● 2 Additional Invasion Bosses
● 1 Additional Breach
● 2 Additional Strongboxes
● 3 Additional Tormented Spirits
● 2 Additional Perandus Chests and a 33% chance to spawn Cadiro
● 3 Additional Rare Monster Packs with Nemesis Mods
● 3 Additional Magic Monster Packs with Bloodlines
● 1 Additional Abyss
● 2 Additional Harbingers
● 1 Timeless Monolith
● 1 Metamorph
● 1 Delirium Mirror
● Beyond

Prizes for all three events include the new Demigod’s Authority, a Twilight Mystery Box for reaching level 50, and random microtransaction prizes at level 60, 70, 80, 85, 90, and 95 that will be drawn at the conclusion of each event.

Path of Exile is a free-to-play action RPG. It is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
